A Contribution to Clinical Medicine - Scholar's Choice Edition or Penguin would kindly pat Brooke s hand and say thank you we will take it from here but no they let this drivel gon for four hundred monotonous pages Yes Brooke we get it your mother had a drinking problem and you did not separate from her the way most Heaven Next Stop offspring do and until her death you did not know where she ended and you began This sad fact did not need to be repeated in every chapter It did not endear you to me it just made me sad for a daughter that was desperately trying to redeem her mother in the eyesf the public I am not saying that there was not love between mother and daughter I believe that they loved each ther so much that there was little room for anyone else Unfortunately for Brooke from a very young age she decided to ignore her mother s compulsive lies and chose for most f her life to believe what she needed to believe Laughing ff the stories as little white lies and making excuses became Brooke s full time job By the end f the book I was sad for Brooke Except for the alcoholism I was beginning to see Brooke as no different from her mother The stories were exaggerated name calling Bases Loaded of ex boyfriends twisting situations to where she always cameut Have A Good Night, Volume 1 on top Dramaticutburst and hyperbolic language seemed to be the same go to for both mother and daughter If you can make it to the end there is a very loving tribute and that is where the book should have ended But f course not the hand f reason did not eliminate the section telling f Brooke s purchasing yet another home and decorating it having a breakdown f sorts and rushing When You Lose Your Job out to buying new furnishing that were along the likesf her husband and herself Really this should have been used as the beginning f another book One where she is finally building her wn life Brooke herself said that the writing Isabel the Queen: Life and Times of this book was not cathartic for her and I would have to say that it was not beneficial to me either This isne Fantastic Post Office 03 of those books that is best picked up from a bargain binr a library rummage sale Poorly written and edited repetitive and at times so vague as to be confusing I think Shields didn t want to reveal too much about certain aspects Tim Crouch of her life which I can understand but then either don t write a bookr be a better writer so you can make it work anywayAnd yet I read the whole thing Skimmed in places but not much There was just enough insider info to keep me going However she never full n addressed the reason I picked up the book was she angry about the amount and type f jobs her mother signed the young Shields up for as a child She does seem OK and even pleased with some controversial pieces Drawing the Human Head of her career like Pretty Baby mostly because it had an important director but then she doesn t even mention posing for nude photos for the Playboy publication Sugar and Spice at age 10 In recent years she demanded a museum remove a nude photo takenf her during that photo shoot so it sounds like she wasn t thrilled with being a nude model at 10 yet she never even mentions this in the book I think she just didn t want to face up to and address many big issues but if you re not going to touch Twin Block Functional Therapy: Applications in Dentofacial Orthopedics on the hottest topics people talked about regarding your mother and her guidancef your career why write a book to tell the real storyShe also DIY Projects for the Self-Sufficient Homeowner: 25 Ways to Build a Self-Reliant Lifestyle often simply stated that somethingr another happened without write a book to tell the real storyShe also ften simply stated that something r another happened without how that event affected her life r relationships For instance she talks about Andre Agassi getting so angry ver watching her Brooke wrote this book Dead Man Riding (Nell Bray, outf indignation for her mother s harsh critics She was determined to prove that Teri Shields was not the typical stage mother but the truth was far worse she was an abusive alcoholic that made her daughter her meal ticket It is sad to read Brooke s excuses for her mother her praise her glossing ver the ugliness it just makes the abuse and neglect she endured seem far worse And though Brooke acknowledges she would never allow her daughters to make a film like Pretty Baby r even the provocative Calvin Klein ads she won t condemn r even criticize her mother for it Her inability to fully come to terms with her mother s abuse is depressing and near the end f the book I had to force myself to finish it If you re a fan the book is a fairly satisfying autobiography and worth the read but be aware that angry Brooke is inordinately fond f the F word and has sprinkled and worth the read but be aware that angry Brooke is inordinately fond f the F
